Surviving teething and an onslaught of "why"

Last night I hit a wall of exhaustion. Tooth #4 for Henry made for two fairly sleep deprived nights previous. Last night I fed Henry in bed at 8:30, and didn't get back out until this morning. Just before dozing off, Jim, Willa, and I were in bed together eating popcorn and watching "I Survived a Japanese Gameshow." Willa wants to know "why?" everything.

"Why did that car stop?"
"Because the driver stopped it."
"Why did the driver stop it?"
"Because the light turned red."
"Why did the light turn red?"
"Because the road commission's study found that 94 seconds is the optimal time for traffic flow at this time of day."

I don't know if you've ever watched the "... Japanese Gameshow." It is zany at it's best. And watching it with a curious three year old makes it better. Though the questions are difficult to answer. She does not understand that there are no answers when it comes to a lot of television in Japan.

After Jim took Willa upstairs, I went right to sleep. And didn't wake up until 7 am. I can't stop smiling.

It's probably like taking a big sip of sunshine. Ahhhhhh.
